Let the Record Show – the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl – is back with its “Socially Distant Series” of video-conferenced episodes. Episode 45 features NYC electronic dance duo Sofi Tukker, best known for their infectious hits that have been featured in multiple ads for Apple, as well as Samsung, Smirnoff, and Amazon.
Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern join hosts Mike Pizzo and Warren Peace to dig through some of the songs that have influenced them, with a diverse crate of track selections that includes Jack White, The Animals, Gnarls Barkley, Buena Vista Social Club, Stan Getz & João Gilberto, and September. The duo also reveals the origins of some of their most recognizable hits, “Best Friend”, “House Arrest”, and “Purple Hat”, as the latter is discussed while the Record Store Day 2020 “Dancing on the People” purple vinyl spins.
Sofi Tukker’s appearance on Let the Record Show marks the 45th episode in the series and the tenth episode of Season 4.
